SINGLE REVIEW
BENI – OUR SKY

1. OUR SKY
2. HOME SWEET HOME
3. OUR SKY -instrumental-
4. HOME SWEET HOME -instrumental-

OUR SKY is the twenty-fourth single by Japanese/American singer BENI, released on June 19, 2013. The single debuted at #31 on the Oricon Charts.

Ofcourse I was expecting a lighthearted song with a breezy feel, but OUR SKY still has a bit of attitude I like very much in the song. It’s catchy, maybe not the first time you hear it but if you give it a couple more listens you’ll get the hang of it definitely. Especially the chorus tends to stay in your head, but the entire song has such an infectuous summer anthem feel to it every BENI fan must be in love with this new song. Love the vocals by the way, BENI.

I think I can prepare myself for not finding HOME SWEET HOME on her next album (TBR 2013.07.31), because B-sides never make the cut. In this case it’s a darn shame indeed because this song is so unlike what she usually releases. BENI is an R&B artist ofcourse, but this song proves she can tackle some pop/rock ballads too. The arragement in this song is so appealing with its funky ambience, while it still stays in that ballad mood. BENI’s vocals are even better in this song than in the A-side because she does some more adlibs this time (and I simply adore her adlibs and higher pitched vocals). Please put this on your album, BENI, pretty pretty PLEAAASE.
